With more and more folk gravitating towards Japanese kitchen knives, and more handle makers emerging, what differentiates one from another? Well, Daniel Ryan has nothing to prove by throwing oser designs out there just so he can be seen. Instead, he sticks to the classics, and does it very well with a minimalist design which is just familiar enough with a touch of 'je ne sais quoi'. Alright, enough with the French. The point is, if you like to use the word classy or classic when referring to a handle you are after and want it extremely well made, Daniel Ryan may just be your guy.
